Mike the Magnificant

I just had to brag on him....just a little. I relish in every opportunity to do such, though I rarely take advantage. How could I possibly find time in the days to blog about everything wonderful that he does?

Today was very special though. I was a chaperone on our youth float trip on the James river. I was up bright and early and on my way to a day full of fun with the teenagers, floating down the river. A few more rocks than I would prefer and the seaweed was in plentiful splendor, but all in all it was a really fun trip. The sun and I didn't get into too much trouble so that was nice too.
The real excitement came when I got home! I walked in the door expecting to feel wonderful seeing my sweet husband and my happy kids but I got even more! There was my cute family waiting to hug and kiss me but all around was the evidence of their love. My house was spotless! The dishes were done, counters wiped down. The toys were picked up and the floor was vaccumed. Everything was neat and tidy. I almost couldn't hold back the tears.
After getting a nice hot shower and rinsing the remnants of river goopey off of me, Mike kissed me goodbye and rushed out to pick up dinner so I wouldn't have to cook. Truly a day off!!!
I am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband. What I ever did to deserve him, I will never know!! My version is that Heavenly Father was afraid to send me knowing I wouldn't be able to find a husband so Mike accepted the job as a service.
He is truly the most wonderful man. He is so selfless and kind, the perfect father and husband. He's hot too...which helps. :) I am such a lucky woman!! Everyone always says that I will outgrow that newlywed phase. Newsflash...they've been saying that for about 7 years now....and I still get all weak in the knees when I see him. You can tell me it will wear off but you will be wrong. He is my true love....die-hard, hopeless romantic that I am, I have no problem admitting that he is my whole heart.

*smile* I understand that one. Four years and the butterflies still come when I hear his ringtone when he calls. We can be crazy newlyweds forever together. Love ya girlie.
